I am interested in the iBasso DX50. I had a Fiio X3 but it stopped charging in the middle of its charge cycle and ended up not working even when plugged in. The only other source that I have is an iPod Nano. So how good is the build quality? Can I use it while it is charging? And finally, can I use the microUSB cable to connect a DAC? I have ordered a C5D DAC/amp and would like to use the external DAC. But if I cannot, then I will hook it up to the line-in of the amp part.
Cant use it while its charging
Build quality is awesome, feels very solid. My battery is still going strong after 3 months of heavy usage.
I dont believe that it supports USB dac. you can use the Coax to an external dac, but not the USB. its only for charging and data transfer.
It is wayyyy better than earlier FW's. 1.2.8 (the current one) is the first one that makes the player perform acceptably. THere are still quirks, so if you need a completely bug free player, the DX50 is not there yet. It works fine for me though, so it gets my endorsement. All in all, the quirks are minor at this point
